"Arputha Theevu" has Prithviraj as the hero with Bollywood actress Mallika Kapoor as the heroine. Manivannan, Karunas, Vaiyapuri and leading Malayalam comedian Jagadish are the other actors in the movie.
The story is similar to that of Gulliver's Travels. It is a story of an island where the men are born dwarf-like due to a divine curse while the women are as usual tall and extremely beautiful. Out of jealousy, the men guard the island from handsome outsiders. However, Prithviraj manages to land up there and fall in love with the chieftain's daughter, Mallika Kapoor. The story is how they both struggle in love and how their love triumphs after a series of obstacles.
